Press To MECO are bounding from strength to strength at the moment. Following the release of two stellar singles and putting on some incredible shows supporting SikTh and Devil Sold His Soul last month, the alt-rock trio have just penned a deal with Marshall Amplification’s own record label.
This explains the delay to their second studio album Here’s To The Fatigue that was the focus of the band’s past few months when it was revealed the release would be pushed back from November 17th. Now with the label backing them, the sophomore record will drop on March 30th. The album was recorded, produced and mixed by ‘Machine’ at The Machine Shop (Every Time I Die, Lamb Of God, We Came As Romans).
On their signing, the band comment:
We’re incredibly proud to announce that we’ve signed to Marshall Records! Thank you to everyone for being so patient and understanding while we’ve been quiet, we genuinely have the coolest fans. We’re all super excited to work with such an amazing team and look forward to finally releasing this new album.
Adding to this, Marshall Records Director Steve Tannett says:
I am delighted to welcome this amazing band on the label. Their pursuit of musical excellence is inspirational to me and I hope to many aspiring young artists around the world.
But that’s not all for the band. Just the other day they were announced as main support to Arcane Roots throughout January, as well as a special series of shows as part of Independent Venue Week alongside label mates Reigning Days and King Creature following the tour.
The band also joins the roster at Marshall Records Publishing, which was recently formed with BMG Rights Management in London.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again that this band, in fusing a hard musical backdrop with smooth, layered vocals, have the potential to go very far. Having caught them supporting SikTh last month (and speaking to them at the time) and hearing new material from Here’s To The Fatigue, we can vouch for them when they say the best material is yet to come. Well done lads!
